The Surprise, by Beth Dall

First, Beth wrote one version of her story that matches the level of organization and detail her kindergarteners might aim for.




Then Beth wrote another bare-bones version that she can use for demonstration. Since Beth made sure to leave out the setting in her pictures, she can use this piece to demonstrate on. She might also demonstrate rereading her work and editing to make it easier to read by adding more sounds to her words, or by adding punctuation.
